How I Edit...
Paper Editing (You print, you snail mail it to me.)
I will cross out, insert, make marginal notes, the whole routine and even use the back of the page to let you know what I am thinking.
Digital Editing (Sent via email. Most word processing files are accepted.)
It will be a colorful digital masterpiece of cross outs, inserts, and notations to make your manuscript shine and enhance your writing skills. I prefer to use Microsoft Word's 'Track Changes' so you can see what I did. Note: If you don't use Word, I can do it in Word and create a PDF for your use.
On Both Formats
Preferred submission format: double-spaced, 12 pt Times Roman, 1 inch margins: top, bottom, left, right.
I will review spelling, punctuation, grammar, POV, concept, word choices and whatever is necessary to make your manuscript sparkle. If I see a tendency in your writing which I feel needs to be corrected and/or reinforced; I will task you with a small assignment for you to do and send me. This is free!
Much simpler. $5 per thousand words. That means, 70K words is $350. Yes, 70,657 words is still 70K. I'm not going to fret over 657 words.
Single edit, I do a full edit and return to you. We're done.
Double edit allows, after you finish with my first pass edits, to re-submit for a 2nd full edit at no extra charge. The 2nd edit only costs 50% more when paid at the beginning. Yes, $7.50 per thousand words — but remember, it is paid at the beginning!
